Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie – For Pi Day!

Today is 3.14.   Which means four things.  First, it’s Pi Day.  Second, it’s my anniversary (15 years!).  Third, it’s my little brother’s anniversary (2 years – and there is still debate as to if he actually knew that 3/14 was my anniversary as well, but it’s sure easy to remember).  And fourth, I need a dessert to celebrate!   I toyed around with wedding ideas to tie in to the anniversary, but I have had this Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie recipe cataloged in the back of my mind ever since seeing it on both Bakerella and Our Best Bites.   So Pi(e) Day it is!

The recipe is SUPER simple and quick.   Here’s what you need…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie Recipe from Nestle
Preheat oven to 325

1 unbaked pie crust, homemade or store bought
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter softened (1 and 1/2 sticks)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Having some ice cream and chocolate sauce on hand probably wouldn’t hurt.

Beat your eggs in a large mixer until foamy.

Now add in your flour and sugars.   Beat until well blended.    Beat in the softened butter.   Am I the only one who thinks of Paula Deen EVERY time I unwrap a stick of butter?

Stir in your chocolate chips and nuts.   While I would have LOVED nuts in mine (walnuts, pecans, whatever I could have added in) I have one of those nut allergy kids, so I had to opt out of nuts, which pains me.   Oh the sacrifices we make for our children.    I decided at the last minute to throw in a few different types of chocolate chips just to add a bit more to it to make up for the lack of nutty goodness.

Give it a stir.

Yeah, I totally had the batter on that mixer for lunch, I won’t even try and deny it.

Now you will pour it into your pie crust.  When it comes to pie crust, let me make two confessions.   First, everyone always raves about how great my pie crusts are.   Second,  I have never, EVER, made a homemade pie crust.   Yeah, those two don’t really go together, do they?   When it comes to pie crust, Pillsbury refrigerated crusts have my devotion.   They are so ridiculously easy, they taste great, and really nobody can tell the difference (especially if you just accept their compliments and keep the box hidden in the bottom of your garbage can).   Plus I love that you can freeze them, and the little tiny box takes up less room than a pre-made pie crust would.   So, that is what I used for this recipe.  And all other pie related recipes.

Take it out of the box.

Roll it out on your pie plate…

Spoon in your filling.  Seriously, how easy is that.   I made a cute little chocolate chip heart.  I mean it is my anniversary, right?    Bake at 325 for about 50-55 minutes.   Let cool before eating.  Or dump an entire container of ice cream on top, cool it off asap, and dig in.

Right out of the oven it’s not terribly exciting.   And it appears to have eaten my chocolate chip hearts.  So I guess I’ll be all sappy and say “It has love baked inside”.  Something like that.   The magic happens when you cut this baby open…

See!  YUMMY!    I think this pie REALLY benefits from a scoop of ice cream (and a little chocolate or caramel sauce, or both!).

That pure gooey goodness right there people.  Oh, where are my manners.  Let me offer you a bite…

    I had never heard of making a cookie in a pie crust before! This recipe looks soooo yummy! I actually just put this in the oven a few minutes ago and can’t wait. It should be ready when my hubby gets home from work later tonight. And yes, I bought some ice cream to go with it. I’ll try to post again after we eat it.

  8. Michelle says

    It was sooo yummy! I served warm with ice cream (of course) and I believe I was literally moaning it was SO good… (I even had to have a second piece before I went to bed). I will make this recipe again and again! I added a extra handful of chocolate chips, because my guys do not like nuts either. Thanks so much for a new idea!

  9. Michelle says

    Just had to tell you that I have made this recipe now for the second time. It is one of my new favorites. I would never have thought of putting cookie dough in a pie crust. It is seriously MOAN OUT LOUD good. I was honestly moaning with every bite the first time I made it. LOL Thanks for sharing such an easy and yummy recipe.

    I’m looking for a cookie pie receipe it sounds like this one is amazing so I’ll make it now and get back to you on what I think of it. I’m chef so I’ll be making my own pie crust and attempt to make a subway cookie pie…haha good luck with that one for myself.

    Get a bottle of wheatgerm from the grocery store. Use that in place of nuts if there is a nut allergy problem.
    Make sure no one is allergic to wheat.

    They are very fine in texture but it will be spread throughout (put it in the mixer bowl with everything else) and you won’t be missing anything at all in taste.
    Use 1 Cup in place of 1 Cup Walnuts. Can use even more if you like but recipe looks like everything is balanced.

    The 2nd time I make a recipe, I adjust it according to my tastes if needed.

    Use a spring pan and you won’t even need a crust. I did and mine came out great. I just super lightly greased the pan and ever so lightly swiped it once with a papertowel. It worked and it came right out of the spring pan when done after I cooled it for 15 minutes.
